Art & Design
“I strive to achieve an emotional feeling in my paintings, a captured time, a refined balance between simple form and a more defined visual.” The artist Jason Wright has studied both painting and graphic design, and each discipline is starkly evident in his landscape paintings. Houses reduced to their fundamental form—a roof, walls, a door, windows—and rendered in flat planes of only black, white, and grey are outlined against desolate landscapes of painterly expanses, thick with palette knife strokes. Wright, who trained at the venerable Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington, DC, is preoccupied with shelter as a concept, and “explores the relationship between the simplistic shape of a home and its ever presence in our lives.” We, for one, like his explorations.
